## Planning (SAP PP): CAPP: Calculating

Standard Values
Posted by Arturo Senosain 17 Jun, 2013
Hi PP Friends. This is my 1st blog ever in the SDN. In this blog im going to show an example
of CAPP. Why CAPP? because i dont see for a long time a project that have this stuff, nor
questions in the SDN not OSS Notes in the Marketplace. I dont know if this functionality was
discontinued by SAP but its still active in ECC6, so why not post about it ?
Lets Begin!!

1. What is CAPP?
Is an alternative way to calculate standard values in PP Orders (also in Routing, but dont
complicate this stuff), that allow tricky and complicated formulas. When i was on the
university, in the course "Manufacturig Process" we study some formulas for milling drilling,
cutting,and this kind of things that dont follow rule of three, in spite depend on speed, density
and other parameters.

2. CAPP is an old functionality, most oss about capp refer to version 3, so this stuff exist
before y2k, you know that ?

3.Maths. In this example, we are going to work with 3 parameters, but you can work with
more: 6, 7, 10, not sure but more. My parameters are:

## + Order Quantity: is que quantity in the PP Order

+ Machine speed: is a parameter that you maintain manually at Order Creation.

Imagine in our manufacturing process we need to calculate the machine standard value with
this formula:
MACHINE TIME = ( "GROSS WEIGHT" * "ORDER QUANTITY" ) / "MACHINE SPEED"

There are other options to valuate patameters, eg you can read a Ztable without abap code,
you can use parameters from the routing or you can write abap code in order to do whatever
you want =)

## 4. OK, 1st check Material ZPP_FERT_CAPP01 in plant 6000.

In the Material Master, we set field NetWeight. We are going to valuate automatically a
parameter in the production order with this value.

7. System show all the Characteristics and the final result according to the formula. Also
show the "Weight Material Master come from table MARA".

Ok Thats is! This standard Value can be used in Scheduling, Capacity Planning or Costing
Formulas, but i guess you know about it!
In next post i'm going to explain how to do the customizing.

Arturo!

Hi Arturo,

Thanks for this valuable info. This can very well be used in my existing project.
Can you please mail me or post the next blog on how to do the config.
If you can mail me then please mail me at
ananimeshkumar@gmail.com
I would deeply appretiate your effort.

Hi Animesh
In the SAP Help you can find all the info about CAPP, its quite easy.

d542654ab311d189740000e8322d00/frameset.htm
Maybe next week im going to post the step to reacreate the example.

By the way, i recomend you test carefully the functionality if you bear in mind use in a
proyect, as I told its quite old, i dont see this stuff since 2006 in a productive system.
Maybe one of our SAP Mentors that often post in this forum told as more details about the
functionality, i guess SAP dont inted to improve it.

Arturo.

Nice Job

Hi Arturo,
Very valuable information and triggers the thought process why this is no more used in SAP
and no one talks about it? but you are right awareness is less, and more and more usage of
it helps and as you said testing must be keen to understand & use this concept in projects.
Regards,
Sharat

Hello,

In your example, you are using the 'order quantity' as a variable for your formula.

When calculating the CAPP formula, is the the order quantity (10) being input manually?
Or there is a way in the formula/origin to read the value, after it was entered the first time?
